Lizzie, do a poll now of children. I think we would be surprised at where they think meat and milk comes from ( other than supermarkets of course).

Yes, the ignorance is still out there, but not because the info is not available to them on tv, on the Internet and indeed everywhere. But now in 2019, unlike the 1930's (which my Eastend mum used to refer to on this type of subject) it is probably due to many parents still being reluctant to inform their little darlings about one of the facts of life; us humans eat living things, like those cute little lambs!! :D :D ;)

As Andy touches on there are young children who understand the truth, but I must say I would have been that little girl in 1958 who would not have known that grissly fact. I was a very a emotional kid, and still am as an adult, who would have cried her eyes out if I was told things like that. In fact it was in about 1960 when I first saw on TV a lion killing some young, helpless, and cute animal. My mum took ages to calm me down and, with much love, explain that was nature; it was the way of life :'( ;)

My daughter was taught where meat comes from at school when she was seven years old. That was thirty years ago and she has been a vegetarian ever since.  ::)

That is applying to a growing band of adults, as well as children, it seems as the "scares" of all types about meat hits home! :D ;)

I suggest taking her to the Ferry Inn in Horning for Sunday lunch...

Veggie starter is a giant Yorkshire pud with onion gravy*

Grill some decent smoked bacon for breakfast on Monday and I would wager that she will succumb ;)

* obviously decent gravy is made with beef dripping. This is no exception  ;D

She dines at Londons finest restaurants regularly, and hasn't succumbed to non veggie food yet, even after copious amounts of alcohol.
Stubborn as a mule doesnt begin to cover it. Cant think where she gets that trait from, but it isn't me.  :-X  :-X ;D

Many years ago after a 'few' beers I convinced a veggie mate to have a kebab with loads of chilly sauce!  :)

He spent much of the next day running to the loo and cursing me vigorously. ;D  I of course, was full of sympathy!  :-X  ::)  :)

As far as know, he hasn't touched a morsel of meat in the 25 years since.  :)

I don't get why vegans/veggos need 'meat flavoured sausages' etc... if meat is that repugnant to you, why do you then want to replicate its flavour/texture. ??

It's to  appeal to millennial meat eaters who rather like the taste of meat thank-you-very-much, but don't eat it on the grounds of animal welfare of environmentalism.

Edit: apologies Varche  :-[

My 'little girl' is now 30 but when she was about 4 or 5 she made the connection with the little frolicking lambs in the fields with what we'd just had for Sunday Dinner .....  ??? :-\ :-\ :-\

Is that because you shouted "Mint sauce!" when you walked past the fields?

Or maybe that's just me ;D ;D

She saw the lambs as we drove passed & said 'we had lamb on Sunday didn't we?'  and we saw the look on her face as she slowly put 2 & 2 together ..... she was then very quiet for a while  :-X :-X
